INSPIRED!

Ok. So my trip was hectic and filled with long hours of working, however, that does not mean there was not a little time for some really good food. Before my trip, I posted about finding inspiration from travels; while the greatest trip is still to come in the next few weeks, even this work trip has given me an idea.
While I was gone, my colleagues and I ate at a well-known chinese restaurant. I was in the mood for something light but filling so I decided to go with the wonton soup and lettuce wraps. While this was not my first time having either of these dishes, it was my first experience at this particular place and let me say, it was unique and delicious. So I got to thinking, how can I bring this home to use for parties and dinners?
My plan is simple. I am going to recreate the dishes with the knowledge that I cannot match them identically but the flavors and ideas can still be maintained. I look forward to making the soup with a delicious broth and tender pork wonton and lettuce wraps with flavorful marinated chicken and crisp lettuce. As I make these recipes, I will post them on the blog. The great thing is that not only have I come back with items accomplished for work, but I am also inspired by some new cuisine!
